  • What is the difference between a chiropodist and a podiatrist?
    A chiropodist is trained in the assessment, care, and treatment of diseases and disorders of the foot. Podiatrists are also qualified in the assessment, care, and treatment of foot disorders, but they also have additional training to provide bone surgery. They are both governed under the same regulatory college in Ontario.
  • Do I need a referral to see a chiropodist?
    No, you do not require a doctor's referral to see a chiropodist in Ontario.
  • Are chiropody services covered by OHIP?
    Chiropody Services in Ontario are not covered by OHIP, but are covered by most Third Party Insurance (please check with your insurance provider for details), Extended Health Care Plans & Veterans’ Affairs, and/or can be used for income tax health deduction purposes.
  • When should I see a chiropodist?
    If you are experiencing any foot-related issues such as pain, swelling, or discomfort, it is best to seek out the advice of a chiropodist. A chiropodist specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions affecting the feet and lower limbs. They can help diagnose and treat conditions such as bunions, corns, ingrown toenails, plantar fasciitis, and more. If you are unsure if a particular foot problem requires the attention of a professional, seeking out the advice of a chiropodist is the best way to get a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.

Who Benefits From Custom Orthotics?

plantar fascitis

Plantar Fasciitis

This common condition involves inflammation of the plantar fascia, causing heel pain. Custom orthotics can offer cushioning and support to relieve pressure on the affected area.


Achilles Tendonitis

Custom orthotics can provide targeted support and cushioning to reduce pressure on the Achilles tendon, promoting healing and alleviating pain. 



People with issues like overpronation (excessive inward rolling of the foot) or supination (outward rolling) can benefit from custom orthotics.

Clawed Digits 

Clawed digits refer to a condition where the toes are bent and appear like claws. Custom orthotics can provide relief by distributing pressure more evenly across the foot and promoting proper toe alignment.

Custom orthotics can improve performance by optimizing foot
alignment and reducing the risk of injuries. Creating a stable base
will prevent a reoccurring attack.

Flat foot

Flat Feet or High Arches

People with flat feet (low arches) or high arches may have imbalances in foot mechanics, leading to discomfort. Custom orthotics can provide the necessary support and alignment for these foot types.
